Evidence from the 2014 EU-SILC indicates that a non-negligible proportion of children in Europe live in multi-family households. Leaving aside more complex household types, around 4% of children live with their grandparents and a further 7% with their adult siblings. In this paper we investigate the extent to which living in these two types of households protects children against material deprivation and we provide direct tests of the relationship between the distribution of bargaining power within households and children’s deprivation outcomes.
